Yemen gunmen ‘kidnap Swiss Red Cross worker’

Tribal gunmen have kidnapped a Swiss man working for the Geneva-based International Committee of the Red Cross in southern Yemen, a local pro-government militia leader said on Monday.

The gunmen who belong to Al-Marakisha tribe kidnapped the man in the city of Jaar, in Abyan province, said Hussein al-Wahayshi, a local commander of the Popular Resistance Committees.

Gunmen from the same tribe briefly held two Indian ICRC staff last week.
